Copper Peacock Spider (Saitis sp. 3)


Check out my black leg warmers!

Out of stock


This adorable and very pretty peacock spider hails from open, semi-arid Triodia (spinifex) grasslands in mallee habitat in SA. They are in season during the winter months, like most peacock spiders. They blend in very well with the red desert sand they live on and are nearly invisible until they jump or move around, dancing and displaying using their fluffy leg warmers on leg III to females.

They are a lovely copper colour with swirls, spots and a light beige patch on the abdomen.

Care Tips:

This jumper will require red desert sand to thrive.  They make a little sand bubble out of their silk that they like to spend most of their time in, sleeping.
Pinheads no larger than the body size of the jumper is recommended for feeding.

Enclosure should have more floor space than roof space (horizontal) as these jumpers prefer to stay on the sand, and will rarely if ever climb to the top of the enclosure.  We recommend the Mini Bug Box (horizontally) or The Cube, with a “Desert Boy” Kit.
